And just like that, as quickly as it came, so it is gone. XBL's Major Nelson has completely destroyed the rumor, furthered by Steve Ballmer, that the Xbox 360 would have a Blu-ray drive as an accessory. The Major has posted on his blog that Ballmer was referring to “Blu-Ray accessories for the PC.” ...What?"As we have said in the past, we have no plans to introduce a Blu-Ray drive for the Xbox 360." blogged Nelson, then quickly shifts focus to another quite interesting subject: "the future of home entertainment starts very soon when Xbox 360 becomes the first and only console to offer instant-on 1080p streaming HD movies. With a library of thousands of TV shows and movies to choose from, Xbox 360 owners can instantly watch the movies they want, when they want, in the highest form of high definition."While the idea of being able to watch HD movies straight from Xbox Live sounds great, it doesnt replace having the option to get a Blue-ray drive. I guess we'll just have to keep dreaming.
